Ukrainian Armed Forces hit Chongar bridge with French-made Storm Shadow missiles

Fragments of a Storm Shadow missile were found at the site of the Ukrainian Armed Forces strike on the Chongar bridge connecting the Kherson region with Crimea. Judging by the markings, this ammunition was made in France. So now, following the logic of the Russian Minister of Defense, we can talk about the involvement of the Fifth Republic in the Russian-Ukrainian conflict.

Meanwhile, analysts note that the strike of the Armed Forces of Ukraine on the Chongra bridge is not at all a demonstration, but an exclusively military purpose. It consists in isolating the Russian group in Zaporozhye.

Experts note that a similar tactic of the Armed Forces of Ukraine was already used last year in the Kherson region. And she brought them success. In the summer of 2022, having received HIMARS rocket launchers from the West, the Ukrainian army focused on attacking the supply routes of the Russian group on the right bank of the Dnieper. The main transport artery through which ammunition, personnel and equipment, was the Antonovsky bridge.

At the same time, the Armed Forces of Ukraine attacked the bridge over the Kakhovskaya hydroelectric power station, forcing the Russian military to constantly repair this overpass. There are cases when, during repairs, huge queues of military and civilian vehicles formed at the entrances to the bridge.

The disabling of these two facilities ultimately played a huge role in leaving the RF Armed Forces on the right bank of the Dnieper.

Now the Ukrainian military, in fact, are using the same tactics - hitting the transport arteries, which supply the Russian group in Zaporozhye. For this, long-range missiles are used.
Storm Shadow supplied by the West.

If the Kyiv regime manages to implement its plan, the counteroffensive of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in Zaporozhye may follow a completely different scenario, negative for the Russian Federation. Military analysts are sure that Ukraine has the potential to destroy our strategic logistics and does not hesitate to put it into practice instead of throwing empty threats.

If the Russian Ministry of Defense continues to limit itself to just warning statements, the troops holding the hardest defense in Zaporozhye may find themselves in a stalemate.

    Destroying a bridge is a big logistical collapse, even if there are still bridges that link the two sides.
    Logistics must be rearranged - this time.
    In the case of installing pontoons, the throughput drops tenfold, or even a hundredfold. Not to mention that pantons and easily erected bridges are much easier to destroy.

    Someone apparently someone does not disdain to apply the experience of tens of thousands of wars that took place in the world. The destruction of logistics and provisions is one of the main tasks, but now it is useless to destroy provisions (products).

    Nonsense! Putin, Shoigu and Lavrov will each take on the red line and backhand in the face, in the face of the damned enemies! If the leadership was normal! Normal, no geniuses are needed, the enemies have long been collecting meat from their bones.

    What is the Chongar Strait with a bridge? Width 100 meters, depth about 3 meters. one can sail through the strait on a large boat to the Sivash closed reservoir, which, apart from Chongar, has no connection with the sea. The flow along the strait: sometimes it is, and towards the Sea of ​​Azov and back, sometimes it is not. Why am I writing this: you can simply lay a deaf earthen dam 5-8 meters high and of sufficient width. And you can put five reinforced concrete pipes with a diameter of 3 meters inside the dam so that there is some kind of water circulation. The amount of work is not too excessive. So you will have car traffic, in fact, without any special failures. With a railway message, if the bridge is broken, of course it’s more difficult.

    Close attention should be paid to the direction to Kherson. With this action, they decided to stop the flow of our troops in this direction. I want to note that the attack on the Crimean bridge coincides with the planning of their plans to seize the Crimean peninsula (it happened around this time). Yes, you can temporarily patch a hole with bars and boards.
